change of 720 degrees. but one thing that is completely clear in this budget is that women in particular will suffer because of the choices the republican budget makes. instead of closing tax loopholes for companies that ship jobs overseas, the budget kicks kids out of head start. instead of getting rid of tax breaks for the oil and gas industry, this budget cuts for single moms struggling to put food on the table, it cuts food stamps. and it seems to me the budget proposing we are ics tax 3.1%, but 1.1% loopholes. so if you just close those tax loopholes, you would be able to significantly reduce the deficit and the debt. why in the world are we giving tax loopholes for companies that move jobs overseas? if you are going to give a tax incentives, it should be to the companies that stay in america and create jobs for americans. now, instead of ensuring that women are not discriminated against by health insurance companies, this bill would repeal the rights women earned in the affordable care act. the republican budget cuts medicare benefits, cuts medicaid services, cuts health

about demographics and health inflation. obamacare changed medicare as we know it. obamacare puts a board of 15 unelected bureaucrats in charge of medicare. these bureaucrats, by law, are given the assignment, required to cut medicare each and every year to hit the targets that will lead to denied care for current seniors. we disagree with that. we think patients and their doctors should be in charge of their health care. we believe choice in competition so that seniors have guaranteed coverage options to make sure that they can have a plan that best meets their needs. is this some pie in the sky theory? to yield myself one more minute, let me show you a chart. by the way, you get a check, no one is proposing that. premium support is a bipartisan solution, the only bipartisan idea offered on how to save medicare. how the prescription drug law works today. when the prescription drug law was passed, it was expected to cost about $100 billion. when it began on an annual basis. what happened to the actual costs? it came down 41% below cost projections. the prescription drug law came in

systemic change, something we in central and eastern europe had to do 20 years ago, something similar. the other part of the problem is the european integration model, the excessive and unnatural centralization, harmonization, standardization, and unification of the european continent based on the concept of an ever-closer union is another obstacle. a few days ago i listened to the speech given by the italian minister of the economy, and he made a point that to build such an integration was a necessity. i raised my hand, and asked, what you mean, such an integration of the current form of european integration is an historical accident. it could have many developments, many of variants, and i am sure this one is the wrong one. these complex issues deserve to be discussed from many perspectives, but it is evident they found their climax in the attempt to monetary unify the whole continent. this was the moment, to use the ogy, when the marginal costs exceeded their benefits. this evidence failure -- and it is appropriate to call it a failure -- was inevitable, byected, and well u

tactical day-to-day details prevent us from noticing change. strategic change is really hard to notice when you are in the midst of it. it is hard to detect, nearly impossible to do, unless you are constantly looking for it. ironically the people who are most ill-equipped to see change are the experts who follow the issues most closely. the people who you rely on to analyze an issue are exactly the wrong people to tell you when that issue is bearing off in a different direction. and the last thing i think is was toog that really frequent in our analysis, and that is we did not distinguish what we knew from what we did not know from what we thought. in fact, sometimes if we think something for long enough, then we think we know it. there is a big difference between what we think our conclusions are and the fact. just wrapped up, come back to the subject of my part of the seminar, which is the relationship between intelligence and policy makers. it is critical. it is why we exist. we need to be responsive and relevant and reliable and expert. looking back over my career, some of m
